On this episode former UFC Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk stops by to play Tony in a little game we call “Sumo Kings”. This game was obviously made up for creative reasons. In preparation to UFC 223, on April 7th at the Barclays Center, Tony ask Joanna what was different about this training camp compared to her previous one. Tony even blesses Joanna with an assortment of nicknames, which is in fact still up for grabs if Joanna chooses to use for her liking.
Zachary Quinto, who stars as Spock a.k.a. our favorite Half-Vulcan in the rebooted franchise, told Entertainment Tonight that there are a few people gunning for the writer's chair for the upcoming film.
“First of all, I think there’s a couple of scripts. Because there was a script being written before Quentin Tarantino came up with his idea for a potential film. And so I think they are kind of developing more than one,” he said. “So I don’t know what is going to happen. Quentin is off doing another movie. So, I feel like we are in a state of anticipation. All of us are really excited about the idea of working with Quentin on a Trek film, but I know Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, who wrote the last film, are writing a script and there are another set of writers writing a script. So I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Back in 2009, J.J. Abrams produced and directed the first film in the rebooted franchise, while Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman took on the writing duties. Two more films, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond, have been released since then. While the next installment is set to be released in 2019, it seems they'll either have a series of multiverses with different writers or only one will come out on top. Or perhaps they're trying to keep up with their nerd rival, Star Wars, which has multiple series in the works.
Either way, Tarantino is pretty busy these days as he's working on the film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is based on the gruesome murders of Sharon Tate and her friends by Charles Manson's followers. Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to star as Tate's next-door neighbors, while Margot Robbie is in talks to play the late actress.
But we'd be lying if we weren't curious what a Tarantino-backed Star Trek would look like either!
Jay Z has recently been pretty candid about his mother, Gloria Carter, coming out to him after sharing it with the world on “Smile” via his 2017 album 4:44. On an upcoming episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the GLAAD Media award winner sits with host David Letterman to talk about how it all went down.
“Imagine having to live your life as someone else and you think you're protecting your kids,” he said. “For her to sit in front of me and tell me 'I think I love someone,' I really cried…I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free.”
The conversation happened pretty recently, while Jay was creating 4:44. “This happened eight months ago, when the album was being made. She just told me. I made ['Smile'] the next day.” Gloria Carter would eventually add her own words to the song, penning the last-minute poem on a flight to meet her son in LA. “I knew,” Jay told Letterman of his mother's sexuality, “but that was the first time having the conversation. And the first time I heard her say she loved her partner.”
In the same episode, Jay also shared what makes fellow rap icons Snoop Dogg and Eminem great. “There's multiple ways to be really good,” he adds. “Some people just have it all.”
The full episode will be available on Netflix on April 6.
Rob Kardashian is fed up with Blac Chyna, again. Over the weekend Chyna decided to attack a woman with Dream’s stroller while at Six Flags and that was, apparently, the final straw. TMZ reports that Rob has decided to take Chyna back to family court.
Rob and his lawyers are reportedly going to file legal documents to ask for a hearing. In the hearing, they hope to set legal rules for what Chyna can and cannot do when Dream is in her presence.
Kardashian is not only concerned about the social media star’s behavior, but who she brings around Dream. Chyna recently procured 18-year-old YBN Almighty Jay as her new bae. Rob reportedly wants to come to an agreement in court where neither parent can introduce a new boyfriend or girlfriend into Dream's life unless the relationship is more than six months long. He also plans to ask for a reduction in the $20,000 a month he pays to Chyna for child support. They currently share 50/50 joint custody over Dream.
Video of Blac Chyna starting a fight at Six Flags surfaced over the weekend. In the video, Chyna is seen lashing out with Dream’s stroller after a woman reportedly touched her daughter. On her Instagram story, Chyna responded to the footage.
“Being famous is hard enough dealing with scrutiny but when someone feels comfortable to come and touch your child it's a whole other story,” she writes. “I do not condone violence nor am I a violent person but shout out to all of the amazing mothers out there that will protect their children at all cost. Love, King and Dreams Mommy.”
Superfly, the organizer behind Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, has teamed up with Goldenvoice parent company AEG to begin plans for a brand new festival in Colorado. One of the locations currently on the radar for hosting the event is Denver’s Overland Park Golf Course, likely for its vast expanses of grass and the potential to hold tens of thousands of attendees.
According to Chuck Morries, CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountains, the idea has been in the works since 2010, and will include a wide diversity of musical acts across multiple stages. The new event plans to bring in 30,000 to 60,000 fans, and will be held across one weekend in 2018, closing by 10 p.m. each night.
As Denver-based publication Westwordreported, “Morris and his colleagues see potential — not just in run-of-the-mill stadium concerts, but in creating a festival experience with multiple stages and a bevy of musical acts, akin to Coachella, if slightly smaller, at least in the beginning.”
With other locations such as Colorado’s Westminster, situated about 10 miles north of Denver, still in consideration for the new event’s final destination, the AEG and Superfly teams now find themselves dealing with the area’s approval process to lock something down.
Since forming in the late 90′s, STS9 has been a band that has performed at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza and many others. Just posted last night on the STS9 Facebook Page , the group STS9 has announced that the group and bassist David Murphy are “parting ways”. Though there wasn’t any explaination as to why he was leaving, the post sounded like they wished David the best for his future. Stay tuned for further details.
Unfortunately because of the split, STS9 will be postponing their upcoming winter tour dates through February, but they will be offering refunds to all of their shows.
